Application November 28, 1944, Serial No. 565,506 1 Claim. 1 (01. 5-478) 2 . This invention relates to a folding bedstead construction, more particularly to a small doll or child’s bed. The principal object of the inven tion is to provide a simple and economical con struction which can be folded ?at for shipping purposes, which can be quickly and easily erected by a child, and which, when erected, will provide a substantial, non-collapsing bedstead. Other objects and advantages reside in the de tail construction of the invention, which is de signed for simplicity, economy, and e?iciency. These will become more apparent from the fol lowing description. In the following detailed description of the in The outer extremity of the hook members I1 terminate in hooks [9 having rounded ends 20. The hooks I9 are so positioned as to engage a cross member 2I, there being one of these cross members in each of the head and foot frames I3 and I4. 7 Thus, when the head and foot frames are swung upwardly to their vertical positions, the cross members ZI will come in contact with the 10 rounded extremities of the members I5. This will force the latter members downwardly until the hooks I9 snap upwardly around the cross mem bers 21 to lock the bedstead in the erected posi tion. vention, reference is had to the accompanying 15 To fold the bed it is only necessary to force the drawing which forms a part hereof. Like numer extremities of the hook members I‘! downwardly als refer to like parts in all views of the drawing -until they disengage the cross members 2i. This and throughout the description. ' In the drawing: 7 allows the head and foot frames I3 and I4 to be folded inwardly at their tops until they lie upon Fig. 1 is a perspective view of the improved 20 the slats II] as shown in Fig. 3. While a speci?c form of the improvement has Fig. 2 is a longitudinal section through the bed been described and illustrated herein, it is desired stead in the erected position; and to be understood that the same may be varied, bedstead in the erected position ready for use; Fig. 3 is an enlarged detail section illustrating ' within the scope of the appended claim, without the folding action of the improved bedstead. 25 departing from the spirit of the invention. The improved bedstead consists of two parallel Having thus described the invention, what is side rails I0 and II which are pivoted at their claimed and desired secured by Letters Patent is: extremities, as shown at I2, to a head frame I3 A folding bedstead comprising: two side rails; and a foot frame I4. A slat supporting strip I5 a foot frame; a head frame; pivot means respec is secured along the lower edge of the side rails 30 tively securing said foot frame between the foot I0 and I I. These strips support a plurality of bed extremities of said rails and said head frame be-. slats I6 which are secured thereto. The slats tween the head extremities of said rails; slat-sup form the support for the mattress or bed proper. porting strips secured along the inner faces of The strips I5 terminate in spaced relation to said rails adjacent the bottoms thereof; slats se the extremities of the rails l0 and II to provide 35 cured at their extremities to said strips and ex stops for maintaining the head and foot frames tending transversely of said bedstead; elongated I3 and I4 in the upright position. The pivots resilient hook strips secured at their inner ex I2 are positioned above the strips I5 so that the tremities to the bottom of the middle slat with head and foot frames may, when folded, lie flat their extremities projecting oppositely outward upon the slats I6 in parallel relation thereto. 40 beyond said head and foot frames; and hooks on The frames I3 and I4 are maintained vertical the projecting extremities of said hook strips de by means of resilient hook members l1 which tachably engaging said head and foot frames to are secured at their inner extremities to the mid prevent the latter from swinging inwardly at dle slat I6 and arranged to extend toward each their tops, said slat-supporting strips terminating extremity of the bedstead beneath the slats there 45 at the vertical position of the inner faces of said of. The hook members I‘! are preferably ‘?at legs for preventing said frames from swinging strips band sawed from a suitable resilient wood. outwardly at their tops beyond a vertical position. They could, however, be formed from metal or other suitable material if desired. AUGUST MAX HAMBACHER.
